It's a Thursday night and I'm playing around with jewellery ideas & mice when I should be sleeping...
I'd be interested to know what you think of this new Velvet brooch idea... I know Macro can be a little harsh because the brooch looks larger in the photos than it does in real life, but you get the idea!

Etsy Hunt: Snowy Owl

After returning from a wonderfully warm long weekend in Queensland the other day, this Melbourne cold snap seems even colder!! So I thought it appropriate to hunt for an animal on Etsy who loves the cold... Snowy Owl.Owl print by Acerritino

Etsy Hunt: Snow White

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs... what a wonderful fairy tale. It was written by the Brothers Grimm and was popularised in the last 100 years by a musical and some films which I happen to like (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sydney White, Enchanted).

A Wednesday Night in April

So it's a Wednesday night and I am catching up with my 3 pet mice Mem, Bear and Yasha.
I just got home from the movies, myself and 2 friends went and watched 'The Last Song' starring Miley Cyrus. We were crying for about 25 minutes, it was so sad! I actually like the dress she wore to the wedding in the film. It was a frilly lilac tea dress.

What else has been happening...oh yesterday I put up an A3 poster advertising bramble and bear on a post up wall near my house. Look for one in a town near you!

Well typing just got difficult, Bear is crawling inside my sleeve and tickling the hell out of me!!

Etsy Hunt: Moustaches

I LOVE a good moustache. They remind me of distinguished gentlemen from 1868 who want to dance with you at the ball, court you for 6 weeks and whisk you off to an estate in the country to be married. Unfortunatley some moustaches do not conjure up such dreamy thoughts. Below is an ode to moustaches in the form of handmade etsy loving.

My Mum and Dad bought me a sewing machine as a surprise! Awesome!

As soon as I learn to thread the thing I thing I should definitely get some vintage patterns like these:

and make some of these:

Isabel dress by oneaviandaemon

Don't know how I'll go seeming I did fail year 8 textiles. But a girl can dream, can't she?

Veggie Patch

Today is all about redoing the vegie patch. Getting rid of carrots and parsnips. Planting strawberries, chives, parsley, rocket and mint.

We like to garden with friends. Here is one of them...

His full name is Marmaduke Hubbard (lives in a cupboard). But we like to call him Ginnie.
